How do you say goodbye,
When you know it'll be the last?
Knowing the next time you see them,
It'll be in memories from the past?
What words can you use,
To say what you feel inside?
When they look in your eyes,
And your sorrow you can't hide?
How can you send them on,
To their home up in the sky?
Knowing when you walk away,
You're saying forever in goodbye.
How do you let them go,
Knowing it will be forever?
Knowing this will be the last time,
You'll ever have together?
How can you whisper the words,
Knowing they'll be gone any day?
That the next time you see them,
God will have taken them away?
Your eyes fill with tears,
As you hug them and turn to go.
It's the last touch you'll ever share,
And the tears begin to flow.
You now have to send them on,
To their home up in the sky.
Knowing when you walked away,
You said forever in goodbye.
